No ... because pepinfo creates two graphs and making that work for 
multiple sequence input is very tricky. This is why pepinfo only reads a 
single sequence (but you can put ":id" after the filename to say which 
FASTA file entry you want, of use dbifasta to index the file as a database)

But ...

it is (relatively) easy to modify pepwindow to generate hydropathy plots 
or data for multiple sequences.

How many sequences do you have in mind?
